0

A leading national charity is appealing for volunteers to come forward and help them to support blind and
partially sighted in Kensington & Chelsea .
British Wireless for the Blind Fund (BWBF) is the only charity providing specially adapted radios to blind and
partially sighted people across the UK. BWBF offer a range of devices, free of charge, to people who meet the
charity’s criteria. The devices allow blind people to listen to radio, podcasts, talking books, talking newspapers
and much more, all at the touch of a button.
The charity is looking for ‘Radio Supporter’ volunteers to visit blind people in their homes and support them to
use their new radio.
BWBF Regional Development Manager Sophie Wheldon said: “Volunteering really is a great way of giving back
to your community and we are looking for people in Kensington & Chelsea and surrounding areas to support
us in delivering our service to blind people, giving them a lifeline to the outside world.”
“This is a rewarding and flexible voluntary role, you can do it a time to suit you and you will come away
knowing you have made a real positive difference to someone’s life.”
If you are interested in finding out more about this voluntary role please contact Sophie Wheldon on 01283
